I loved it! I kind of just adore Blaine angst anyway, but this was just so sweet and well-written and well-imagined. Well done! Ended sadly, though :( I will now go see where this next installment is...

Blaine's warm voice filled the air with a crushing blow.
amazing lines you wrote here!
Also, this made the whole story for me:
"And now there was nothing more he could do except pray that Kurt would wait for him, wait for him to grow up, grow some balls, grow something. Wait for him to realize his true feelings, to get some strength, to get some bravery, to get some courage…
Just to wait."
A final big, huge, GIGANTIC THANK YOU is all left to say now I think:) I really enjoyed seeing Klaine grow in the course of your story.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, they are getting all flirty with each other:) One word for this chapter really:
| MyMagentaPeach chapter 14 . 7/12/2011
"This was a nightmare, a nightmare of a horrid past event that fucked Blaine up forever." Don't I know that feeling.
The whether outside my apartment is exactly as described in your last paragraphs of this chapter. I am still smiling about that:)
There is so much about this chapter that I love, but most of all your attention to detail,and the wonderful way in which you create that flow between dreams and reality. Fantastic!

"Pushing his inner bitch out of the way, Kurt unlocked the bathroom door and opened it, stepping out into the warm bedroom."
I LOVE this sentence so much. It is perfect!
Also, the ending to this chapter, I am dying, so GOOD! From the point where Kurt helps Blaine up I was nothing but a heap of warm fluffy feelings on my bed!

Sometimes you need more than courage. And that is why I am off to buy some icecream and raspberries now. Will be back in a jiff to read on:)
Damn, yes still still here.
Now I am off.
ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNND...I am back:) One shopping trip and one cool shower later, yoghurt icecream and raspberries FINALLY in hand:) I am ready to read on...
"Like the plague." It's my mum who does that. My dad is the one who when I came out to them took a picture of a thin woman with long blond hair out of a catalogue and mailed it to me, handwritten on it was the sentence "If you looked more like this you could get a man." Wow, it still hurts typing that now, and it has been years, I guess things like that never stop hurting. Gosh, the shit they have done to me. The shit I have done to myself because of them. Crying into my icecream, how pathetic am I:( It's people who make your life miserable, and here is the funny part, it is also people who make your life better. I want to find the latter kind of people so desperately, that that is probably the reason that I don't.
Oh here we go, tall and blond, and to think I had been worried the stuff about my coming out was of the mark;)
Also, way at the beginning of this chapter, geeeeeee Mr. Anderson smiling, I totally froze at that in midmotion, it seemed so unnatural, so creepy, weird, I can't imagine what it was like for Blaine.
UUUUUUHGGGG! "Lauren let her icy gaze fall up and down Blaine's body, as if she were drinking him in." My stomach just turned at that, or maybe too much icecream. No I am pretty sure, it's that image. I HATE being looked at like that, and it does not even matter by who!
"Lies! Blaine frequently saw her sneaking into her house after 3 AM, drunk off of her ass." WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I am laughing so hard right now! YOU ROCK! That sentence OH WOW! Still laughing rather histericly:) "Blainey Bear" though, UUUWHHHHHHHHHHHHH, yuk:(
'have fun you two and no hanky panky' FACEPALMING SO HARD RIGHT WOW, MY HEAD HURTS!
Your writing here is so awesome, I always feel exactly how Blaine reacts, and then I am all like, THAT IS SO ME!
Heavy stuff in this chapter, thank you for writing this, it means so much to me!

"His parents were breaking him down… slowly but surely.
And Blaine didn't know what to do."
This is the first Klaine fanfic I have ever read that makes this point, or for that matter focuses that intensly on Blaine's past. I know I have typed it so much already, but I feel like I cannot say it often enough: THANK YOU!
| MyMagentaPeach chapter 10 . 7/12/2011
So I just have to ask, When did you learn to read minds?:
"He knew that if he allowed his parents to make him feel like crap again, he'd fall right back into that dismal abyss that had filled his life just weeks prior.
Blaine needed to change, he needed the change, he needed to get away from it all.
Running was just the release he needed."
I just went OH CRAP! at the mention of Joshua in his house.
"Why did this have to happen now? He was doing so well! No distractions! Nothing!" Ah, another all too familiar form of self-torture.
That was an amazing chapter. Thank You!
| MyMagentaPeach chapter 9 . 7/12/2011
"how great the ice cold water tasted to his tongue, parched from running." Oh yes Yes YES, that is an AMAZING feeling:)
"Overall, things felt a little bit better for him physically.
It was the emotional aspect that was still messing with him." YEP! Exactly how I feel right now in my life!
Those lines just, I don't know, they got to me:
He wanted Joshua to be that guy that he saw in the movies. The guy who would sit with him on the couch and hold him during scary movies. The guy who would make him breakfast and would stare at him lovingly as they ate. The guy who would throw his coat over a rain puddle and allow him to walk over it (okay, maybe not that dramatic, but he wanted something special with Josh, not just a friendship). He was in love with his best friend.
And his best friend hated him for it…"

"...because Blaine was an idiot who was so oblivious to everything that happened around him..." Thinking of Finn here, it seems Kurt might have a type;)
Thank you for this lighthearted chapter. I needed that desperately.

You made me cry here:( I begin to have to take deep breaths as soon as I see the italic letters in the script. PLEASE tell me he is getting out of there soon, I don't know how much longer I can take it. I even had to stop reading last night and started again first things this moring with my coffee in hand. Which is now sitting next to me as I write this, almost cold because I am of course once again entirely pre-occupied with your amazing story here. It is a though read, emotionally I mean, for me at least. I was a nobody at school, which is probably NO, which is for sure way better than what Blaine has to go through. I was bullied to a much milder extent, and I did not even have the energy to care at all, since my real problem was home. I did not even know at the time that I am a lesbian, so that was not the problem. But my parents were the real bullies, all my life, so I started spending more time at school in the last 3 years of highschool. My parents would still bully me, if I hadn't cut them out of my life by now. I just can't, I don't even know how they do it, but they just tear you apart with looks and slurs, and since I was stupid enough to come out to them I have only ever gotten crap for that two. Blaine is an only child in your story? Well, lucky him. I let my parents tear me apart for years and years after I had moved out, because I could not stay away, knowing my younger siblings were still trapped in all that shit. I am 27 now, and only just beginning to heal. They have taken so much IT SUCKS! Especially since I know I should blame them, but part of me does not get past blaming myself for everything, I hat that I still feel that to be true. What I would have given for finding someone like Kurt, well preferably an Elizabeth in my case:) Oh well, I will just have to fight through the pain in me, and go back out there and do that now, find someone.
THANK YOU for helping me work through my feelings having written that story, and allowing me to write these insane(ly intense) reviews. If it bothers you, please let me know. I just, I have no one to listen for now, so I deeply appreciate the opportunity to share like this.
I sometimes jump reviewing for one or two chapters. If so, it is just because I am either too tired to type because I have been reading for hours, or I am so engaged in your amazing writing, that I NEED to read on immediatly. I hope you understand. It is a form of intense appreciation of your work, that remains invisible to you, so I just thought someone should mention that, because I am certain I am not the only reader who does it for these reasons.

To me Blaine is not at all OOC here. I am still waiting for Blaine to really emerge on the show, because really so far he has only been a device to highlight aspects of Kurt and further Kurt's personal growth. I think you are doing a great job here, attempting to actually tell something about Blaine for a change:)
so thanxs, M
